I mentioned some of the thread re: on portmaster-users because 
there seemed to be an implication that Livingston's Portmaster had a 
problem in its PPP implementation. Now I get a question that I don't know
enough to answer. Perhaps one of you could help this fellow....

What does SNMP and IP address have in common(seen a few postings on this topic tonight wrt Ascend ISDN routers and Netmanage's Chameleon)?

I had a Sniffer on my 3.x.x.x subnet looking for a Portmaster problem when I noticed that I was getting SNMP get next requests from a device in another part of GE directed to my Portmaster on subnet 3.x.x.x with an address of My portmaster's ethernet address was in that packet(i.e. so I'm surprised.

What gives?
